When is the best time to visit South Africa?

Peak Season:

South Africa stands for temperate climate round the year. With a tentative plan to explore the hidden gems of South Africa, it’s not really a significant factor to base your decision on weather conditions unless weather can cause hindrances in your activity plan. Of course, an overwhelming factor could be your activities and adventures that can take your adrenaline glands to fun land by taking cheap flights to the ever-thriving South Africa. Furthermore, winter falls in June and is expected to cast its gloomy cold spells till August. It is characterized by minimal downpours. Such weather attracts the visitors to South African game parks and much more. To be more specific for winter, Cape wine lands enchants the flocks more particularly in low temperatures with its vegetations. Whereas pristine beaches welcome the tourists for savoury delights in summer season. For Hikers, spring and autumn season is the best time of the year in South Africa. Enriched with bustling traditions and encounters, South Africa is a special treat for visitors at any given time of the year.

Off-Peak Season:

Apparently, there is not an exclusively low season but wet season is likely to put a brake on swarm of tourists in December. Otherwise, with the lesser amount of tourists flocking into the country during June and August, it calls for the most suitable time to seek cheapest rates for top notch hotels and accommodation places. Temperature extremes are also not considered very appropriate to travel around the country with exotic tourist highlights. Temperature which is expected to drop below zero curtails the prospective visitors to head on for mountaineering adventures. At the same time, South Africa welcomes the folks to get acquainted with the cultural events backed by historical African tales such as OppiKoppi. Consequently, it always has something to stimulate senses like Safari dreams even for the budget-wise travellers and inclement weather would not last much longer to interrupt your outdoor expedition.

How to manage getting around in South Africa?

When it comes to road and rail infrastructure, South Africa is regarded as the back bone of the region. Its home-based international bus companies not only operate across the corners of the country; they also operate regular routes connecting neighboring countries. Modern highways link all the main cities, functioning in parallel with the well-established rail network in South Africa.

What are the hotel and accommodation options in South Africa?

With the country welcoming the major share of tourists arriving in Africa, South Africa has emerged with a diverse variety of options for all of its travellers. A national level authority maintains regulations of classifying all the hotels in accordance of their standards and services within the major cities. Accommodations specializing in local hospitality include guest houses for ‘paying guests’ to facilitate Bed & breakfast services, as well as campsites.

Game reserves and national parks have their own designated accommodations in their premises, consisting of lodges and huts for safari visitors. For the more ‘unconventional’ traveller, camper vehicles as well as houseboats are also available for getting to stay along the roads or by the lakes.
